      Description

      Most Qt code is running with applied platform plugin with -platform or environment QT_QPA_PLATFORM.
      But the qtwebengine module probably works with build time dependencies.
      In my testing environment, it always try to use X11 related code even though the backend has set as eglfs.
      If runtime backend change is difficult by some reason (e.g - Chromium code/build stuffs's limitation), I think that the configure option to build exclude x11 dependencies from qtwebengine should be provided as option.

      Built qt 5.6 beta on Ubuntu 14.04 with following configure

      ./configure -prefix /path/to -nomake examples -nomake tests -confirm-license -opensource -kms -no-libinput --debug

      Run sample app which uses qtwebengine on X11 env

      => Ok

      Run sample app which uses qtwebengine on non-X11 env (eglfs-kms)

      => Segfault

      unset DISPLAY, stop xdm/gdm/lightdm to shutdown X.org
      export QT_QPA_EGLFS_KMS_CONFIG=$(pwd)/kms.json
      export QT_QPA_PLATFORM=eglfs
      ./sample
      Segmentation fault (core dumped)

      So added -no-xcb-xlib -no-xcb into configure and tried again. but the result was same. Qt's xcb backend has not been created. but the QtWebEngine module work like above backtrace.
